Shipping larger and heavier used auto parts & used RV parts is handled via LTL (less-than-truckload) freight shipping.
How Do You Prepare Used Auto Parts and Used RV Parts for LTL Freight Shipping?
You save money with LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping because your shipment shares the truck with loads from other shippers. It’s important that your cargo be packaged so it will not be damaged in transit and will not present a danger to other shipments on the truck.
Package smaller parts in bulk boxes, which are designed to fit on pallets. The walls of the boxes can be double or even triple wall thick and are often made of corrugated cardboard. Bulk boxes have removable tops and are frequently used when there are smaller parts traveling with the larger parts of the shipment.
Durable large parts can be palletized and covered with packaging material and shrink wrap before being banded to the pallet. Make sure the cargo does not extend beyond the edges of the pallet at any point.
Delicate parts should be packaged securely in crates for the highest level of protection.
